FMSCI has no plans to remove ‘chairman’ Mallya
India motorsports body FMSCI has no plans to remove Vijay Mallya as its chairman despite the troubled businessmen being wanted back home for unpaid loans to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore.
“As of now there are no plans to remove him. Anyway he is an honorary chairman and has no executive powers. To add to that, he doesn’t interfere in the day to day functioning of the FMSCI,” FMSCI president Zayn Khan told A news agency on Wednesday. Mallya, who has been in “forced exile” in the UK since March, has been associated with motorsports for decades and also co-owns the Force India Formula One team.
However, with his passport being revoked by the Indian government, Mallya is unable to attend the F1 races around the world and has only attended the British Grand Prix so far this season.
